National Joint Union Pay Claim for 2021

16 February 2021

The NJC unions (UNISON, GMB and Unite) have today (15th Feb 2021) lodged pay and T&Cs claims for local government (‘Green Book’) staff for 2021.  A copy of the NJC Pay Claim 2021 can be found here and the NJC Conditions Claim can be found here.  

The National Employers will be meeting later this week for an initial discussion. Councils will be consulted during March at the usual round of [virtual] regional pay consultation briefings. We are hosting the virtual pay consultation briefing for the East Midlands to take place on Monday 15th March at 10.00am.  To register a place, email Mila Pereira at mila.pereira@emcouncils.gov.uk

The National Employers will then consider feedback from those events before responding formally to the unions on a date yet to be agreed.  We have been advised that the agreed date will be after the Elections on 6th May 2021.

We will keep you informed of any developments as they arise.
